Hi:

I have a female friend that needs a local mechanic to do normal maintence on her 97 Legacy AWD.

What happened to Arlington Subaru??????? Who bought their dealership???

My friend went to a guy there by the name of "lim". A good Subi mechanic and now he is gone. Where did he go??

So, who knows a good, fair, independent Subaru mechanic in the Dallas, Ft. Worth area?

Thanks, Todd

Subaru of Dallas on Lemmon Avenue. Good place, nice people, reliable work. That's where I bought my Forester and where I get it serviced. The phone number is (214) 526-5555. Ask for Neil Bywater in the service department and he'll take care of ya.

Arlington Subaru bought by Teape Subaru, is under construction at Hwy 10 and Loop 820 in Hurst-will be open later this year.

I do almost all my own work, so I can't recomend a mechanic for normal maintainance, but Subaru of Dallas has helped with parts in the past-having things in stock and at half the price of others.

My thoughts exactly(I live in Watauga). Always a pain to stop and run to Irving, Dallas or Lewisville to get some Dealer only part to finish a project. Hope Teape works out to be be a good dealer.

Did your friend find someone to take care of her Legacy? I took my Sunfire to kaufman tire in Hurst today to have the A/C system vacuumed and charged after I replaced the compressor, drier, etc. Have been using them for my tires for a few years, seem to be honest/reasonable and helpful(free flat fixes, etc.) and they do quite a bit of other work too.

Hello everyone. Teape Subaru opened today(I'm a salesman there) Anyway, Lim is working here now. He came over from Arlington AM. He is AWESOME. He has like 23+ years of experience and is probably one of the best subaru mechanics in the country. According to our service manager sometimes subaru america will call Lim when they need help with wierd service issues. Anyway... he is probably the best person to go to since subaru of dallas lost all their master technicians and is relying on techs. good luck!.....................Ryan
